The Lute within Old Master Paintings Adam Busiakiewicz Thursday 24 January 2019

The lute holds a special place in the history of art: from the golden-haired angels of the Italian Rennaissance to the often debauched Jan Steen interiors of the Dutch seventeenth century, this lecture looks at the lute and other musical instruments as devices to express various aspects of the human character throughout the ages.
